Study Guide for Bicycle Helmets 101

Summary: CanBike's Helmets 101 is a great three minute video. Here are some ideas for a classroom dialogue following the video.

First, the video: Bike Helmets 101: A Basic Users Guide to Brain Safety

The only helmet safety video we have ever seen that is not boring. It was done by three Manitoba organizations, and features fast cuttings, quirky humor and good information in three minutes. It seems suitable for a wide range of age groups. Short, so it is best used to get a discussion going on specifics of helmet and bike safety. You can access it on YouTube, or we can send you a copy on DVD. Note that the video is for non-profit use only.

Then, some questions to use to get things rolling

Here is a .pdf version of this page for printing out, and a Word version for customizing. And here is our page on the video.
